Enjoy a holiday to Wonthaggi and book your accommodation with HomeAway

The beautiful township of Wonthaggi is situated between the seaside towns of Kilcunda and Inverloch in South Gippsland. During the years of 1909 and 1968, the underground mines of Wonthaggi were mined for black, which in turn created a small settlement town for miners and their families. The days of mining are long over however the history has been carefully preserved at the State Coal Mine Historic Reserve.

What to see and do when holidaying in Wonthaggi:

If you’re interested in history you can go to the visitor centre at the East Area Mine Reserve off Garden Street where you can view equipment displays, restored historic buildings and a mine shaft which is open for underground tours. There are also a number of walking tracks that lead to The Central Area Mine which is home to the remains of buildings and mine shafts. Wonthaggi has a prosperous and smart town centre which is exquisitely lined with Norfolk pines. After a stroll down their main street you could stop into the Wonthaggi Hotel which was licensed in 1914. This interesting hotel displays the giant jawbones of a 23 metre whale as its entrance. The whale washed up on the beach during the year of 1923. If your thing is picnics, there are many cute reserves and parks dotted around the town. In the town is also the Wonthaggi Museum, a war memorial and Guide Park which has picnic areas, BBQs and an adventure playground for the kids.

Also on offer is The Wonthaggi Wetlands Conservation Park which is just north-west of the town's centre and is for those who enjoy walking tracks and boardwalks which wind around lakes and through native flora.

Wonthaggi’s Climate:

The climate of Wonthaggi brings sunny, warm days during the summer months reaching temperatures around the mid twenties. If you’re planning a holiday in winter, days are still clear, with temperatures being between 6-12 degrees Celsius.

We booked The Crescent at short notice; the booking process was straight forward and hassle free. Our host Lisa was easy to deal with and professional, polite. We arrived early hours of the morning (0300) but Lisa had arranged for family to get access to the accommodation and stock the fridge with essentials, make up the beds etc which was a huge help. Lisa also left a bottle of wine for us which was a nice touch! The accommodation was a good size, 3 bedrooms, one of which could sleep four children so we were more than comfortable. Two living rooms provided space for adults and kids to relax and there was a good selection of DVDs, games and access to Wi-Fi. The accommodation is 5 minutes from the high street and the sea fronts/local beaches which was really handy and meant we dint need to rely on a car. The only negative point was the fact the barbecue hadn't been cleaned prior to our arrival so we avoided using it; this wasn't a major issue and we informed Lisa as soon as we noticed it. All in all we had a great holiday visiting family in Inverloch; the property is great for a family although I would say it is expensive in comparison to other properties in the area, especially off peak, when we took our vacation. I would recommend the property and would consider staying there again, subject to affordability. Best Regards, Mr and Mrs A Hodgson
